On Jan. 20, the constellation Capricorn (The Goat) moves behind the sun.
Capricorn is the fifth chapter of the Star Bible, a very peculiar picture of a dying goat with the tail of a fish. The constellation and its three associated constellations of Aquila (the eagle), Sagitta (the arrow) and Delphinus (the dolphin) tell the story of the death and resurrection of Christ. Aquila (the eagle) is a picture of a falling eagle, containing the summer triangle star Altair (the wounding) along with other stars Alcair (the piercing) and Alokal (wounded in the heel), showing the death of the seed of woman, who was "bruised in the heel" (Gen. 3:15). The dying Capricorn goat reminds us of Christ's sacrifice as the scapegoat for our sins (Lev. 16:15 and Heb. 9:24-28).
As the goat shows death, so the fish show life. Capricorn is pictured giving birth to a fish, showing life coming from Christ's sacrifice. The constellation Delphinus (the dolphin) represents His resurrection and reminds us that He promised the "sign of Jonah," being in the earth for three days as Jonah was in the fish for three days, and then coming forth (Matt. 12:39-40). The fish story continues with Pisces Austranis (the Southern fish), which pictures a fish opening its mouth to receive a stream of water from Aquarius (the water pourer) and represents the church receiving the Holy Spirit as the believers opened their mouths and spoke in tongues. Then we come to the constellation Pisces (the fish), a picture of two fish, representing the Jews and Gentiles joined together to form the church. No wonder the early church took the fish for its symbol.
This year on Jan. 20 in the late evening hours, there will be a special treat, a super blood moon, which reminds us that we are covered by the blood of the scapegoat and have overcome Satan by His blood and the word of our testimony (Rev. 12:11). As a further reminder, the red planet Mars, symbolic of the blood of Christ, is a resident in the Pisces, the fish constellation, representing the church Christ bought by His blood.
So enjoy a little fishing tonight, and tell someone about the celestial fish story and the power of the Blood of the Lamb.
